Lillie was born in Louisiana in 1887 to Edmond Edward Pitre and Agatha Amelia Langley.

Her father passed away in 1893, and was buried in the LeBleu Cemetery in Fenton, Jefferson Davis Parish, Louisiana.[1]

Lillie was living with her widowed mother and siblings, Ada and Sherman, in 1910 in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana.[2] She was still with her mother and sister, Ada, in 1920, but they had moved to Jefferson Davis Parish, Louisiana.[3]

Lily (aka Lillie) married Elza (aka Eliza) Wilson on 24 Jun 1920 in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana.[4] Her sister, Ada was a witness on the license.

Her mother died in 1935, and was buried in the LeBleu Cemetery in Fenton, Jefferson Davis Parish, Louisiana.[5]

By 1940, Lillie and Eliza were living in Vinton, Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana.[6] They had three children - Kathleen, Robert and Richard.
